“Great For A Quick Layover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Stayed here for one night after our cruise. We used our Aeroplan points. The hotel was clean but somewhat dated. We arrived early but were told we could not check in until 4:00 PM. They did however store our luggage securely and grant us access to all the hotel amenities and pool. The hotel has a great location, backing onto Miami Beach and boardwalk. Our room was large (926) and had a beach view. The only negative was that the walls are paper thin. Casual conversation can be heard thru the walls. We ate at the outdoor Tiki restaurant just down the boardwalk at the back of the Days Inn. Good food and not bad prices for Miami Beach. The morning of our departure we had booked a shuttle only to find a note in the morning that the shuttle was cancelled. Luckily cabs were in abundance and it ended up cheaper than the shuttle would have been. We would recommend this hotel for a quick lay over after a cruise. The location makes up for any negatives.

This Best Western has a good location, friendly staff but needs complete renovation from public space to rooms. We stayed one night. If you are not looking for high standards and for a reasonable price, this one is not a bad deal. Management should also review its check in policy. It is surprising that to get registered a hand print of your credit card is still needed when machines are available and your Pin code enough to avoid any risk of copying your card. When renovation is needed from cellar to the roof !!!

I have stayed in this hotel many times. The location is great! The beach view is beautiful! It is my hotel of choice when I visit Miami. However, during my recent stay, I was dissapointed to see that the quality of the hotel has declined. Here was the issue this stay: 1.The hotel was out of tissues. There weren't any tissue boxes in the room at the time of my arrival and for the duration of my visit. I had to buy my own, as housekeeping confirmed, they were out of them.
2. There also appeared to be a shortage of towels, particularly hand/face towels. They were in the room upon arrival, but were never replaced once used- even though we personally requested it. Housekeeping actually said they were running low on towels! Now, these are 2 basic amenities that one would expect an average hotel to provide. Since I have never experienced this before on previous visits, I can only assume that the fault lies with current hotel management. As it is, this hotel is in desperate need of a makeover. The carpets are stained and worn, the linen has holes, and the faded dust ruffles have accumulated so much dust, it's just plain disgusting! That being said, towels and tissues are elemental provisions, standard to any hotel. It would behoove management to take notice of these glaring inadequacies and make the necessary rectifications posthaste, in order to ensure that this hotel does not diminish further in its rankings.

I stayed while in Miami Beach at the Best Western on the beach. Close to 41st Street, you are one step away from everything but yet, retired from the crazyness of SoBe. The staff at this hotel was super professional and friendly. The rooms are spotless, which sometimes is rarely to find in such big hotels.
P.S: Many thanks to Veronica, Housekeeping Mgr, Homer, and the lady who kept my room spik n' span!

We booked at the Best Western Miami Beach Resort for 2 days prior and 2 days after a cruise. We booked 2 Ocean Front rooms @ their internet price of $189 + Taxes. Their web site said that there was limited onsite parking for a nominal fee.

Upon arrival, there was a very strong perfum/disinfectant smell that permiated the entire building. While it looked clean, the overwhelming, to the point of cloying smell was almost too much to handle. The elevators work when they want to, luckly the emergency phone rings the front desk. The water temprature in one room was either hot or cold. Maintenance worked for about an hour twice to get an even warm to come out of the shower. Clump of dried hair on top of shower curtain didn't help. Overall very clean but the 1980's pink and teal rataan really needs to be replaced. $2 safe charge regardless if you use it or not. Ours didn't work so they removed the charge. A/C only cooled the room to about 75 degrees, so we left the doors open.

Outside of that, the loction is perfect. Right on the boardwalk about a 5 miniute walk to the Fountainbleu!

Thank you for your candid and detailed review. I am glad that you were happy with the location of the Hotel and that you felt it was very clean. I have noted every one of your issues to make sure that they have since been corrected. We take our guest issues very seriously and try to resolve every problem as expeditiously as possible to avoid it from re-occurring. I would also like to extend an apology if you felt the smell was too strong. I have made some adjustments in our cleaning products to make sure the scent is not overwhelming to our guests. We want to ensure that everyone that stays in our Hotel feels comfortable in knowing they are in a very clean room.
I hope that you will give us another opportunity on your next visit to Miami Beach. We are constantly making changes to improve the Hotel to ensure that all of our guests have a memorable stay.

Warmest Regards,
Barbara Romano
